Dare 2B Artzy - Buzzy Beez

Hello everyone! I'm honored to be guest designing on the Dare 2B Artzy blog today with this adorable Buzzy Beez stamp set.

I stamped my bees on mixed media paper and colored them with real brush pens from Arteza. I created my beehive by partially cutting an oval out of floral paper and layering some die cut honeycomb behind it. A few tags and sentiment complete this spring bee card.

Supplies and Tools:
  • Buzzy Beez stamp set (Dare 2B Artzy)
  • Canson Mixed Media Paper
  • Real Brush Pens (Arteza) 
  • Petals and Blooms Designer Paper (The Paper Studio)
  • Dotted Oval Dies (Sizzix)
  • Mixed Media Thinlits (Sizzix - Tim Holtz)
  • Oval Punch 
  • Sharpie Marker
  • Versamark Watermark Ink
  • Clear Embossing Powder (Wow!)
  • Angel Eyes Embossing Powder (Wow!)

These bee's are so cute Esther, especially the top one, he totally made me smile with his happy face!! That floral paper is gorgeous and the addition of the hexagon die-cut in the frame is such a brilliant idea. And of course the sentiment couldn't be more perfect. Always lovely to see you at TIME OUT and please keep yourself safe!! xx
